Just want to know if there are any differences between the first and second editions of this game?

There are only minor differences.

The maps and rules were updated for clarity. The counters are not side mounted anymore in the second edition.

Annoying nubs on the sides, instead of on the corners (which are more easily clipped off).

Thanks for the info, now how much is the map in the second edition an improvement over the first in terms of clarity and are the rules a big improvement or not?

The first edition maps were also meant to be used for a potential WW2 game that was never released (yet). Thus they had WW1 and WW2 borders printed on it. These WW2 borders were removed for the second edition.

The improvements of the rules are minor only. FAQ was incorporated and the victory conditions were streamlined accross the scenarios. IMHO there are also some small changes to the troop setup.

However, the second edition rules (named Sterling) are available for download on the website of the author (http://spwgame.com/games/). The author will also send you the updated scenario rules if you send him a scan of the first page of your scenario rulebook as a proof of purchase.

In short: the second edition looks a little bit nicer, and the rules are a little bit more streamlined but there are no major game changes.

Have finally got all four main games in the series and all second editions as well and will really be looking forward to playing them in the future.
